Russia reserves its right to retaliate in case of deployment of US armed forces in Poland.
The implementation of the proposals of the Polish Foreign Minister will increase military tension in Europe, especially in the context of the recent US withdrawal from the INF Treaty.
Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said that the deployment of the US troops in Poland would “restrain Russia” more than if they were sent to Western Europe.
Earlier in August, US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell said that the United States was considering relocating some of its troops stationed in Germany to Poland since Berlin was not meeting its defense spending commitments within NATO.
US President Donald Trump said in June that Washington and Warsaw in talks to increase the number of US troops in Poland by 2,000. These troops would not be deployed from the United States but rather transferred from Germany.
